Data is a business’ most precious resource – and keeping it safe
is paramount. As a specialist in managing critical systems, we pride ourselves on providing superior security solutions for our customers. Adhering to the highest security criteria within our data centres is of course of utmost importance, but our
approach extends far beyond that. For instance, we use a
range of complementary software solutions to help keep our
customers’ data tightly under wraps, from firewalls to anti-
We’re proud of the way our technical staff go the
extra mile in achieving security qualifications that make them
the very best in their field. Our team hold highly-acclaimed information systems-focused qualifications from CISSP and
CISM, including the coveted CISSP-ISSAP Information Systems Security Architecture Professional award, as well as Check Point Certified Master, which is achieved by less than 1% of Check Point certified professionals. Our Certified Ethical Hacker qualifications make us the perfect partner to devise secure environments for your business, including zero trust models where required.
Our PCI certification demonstrates that we adhere to the full breadth of standards dictated by the payment card industry, the highest security standards published. Whilst several companies hold a PCI certification for their data centre, not all certifications are equal. The highest set of standards is the PCI DSS Level 1 for managed services, which we are proud to adhere to. We are certified to manage multi-tenant cloud environments to PCI DSS Level 1 standards and our people are approved to manage these servers.
SOC2 certification (formerly known as SAS70 type 2) is important for us as we store our customer data in the cloud. To comply, we must have rigorous security processes in place to protect customer data, and annual independent audits assess our ability to meet the promises we make around security and availability.
ISO 27001 for Information Systems gives customers another layer of reassurance that their data is in safe hands. The framework measures risk across a vast range of areas, from physical security to how we select trustworthy partners.
Our data centres boast eight concentric layers of security – far exceeding that of most facilities, which typically stand at five or six. These layers make it incredibly hard to gain access to the servers and include a blend of personal ID authorisation, biometric, PIN and key access. The data centres are manned 24/7 with additional video surveillance, motion detectors and detailed audit trails.
We use a range of software solutions to keep customer data and systems completely secure. This ranges from firewalls placed carefully in ‘at risk’ parts of the infrastructure to anti-DDoS or anti-malware software. We also provide pen test services and zero trust environments for customers looking for that extra layer of reassurance.
Our technical staff hold a wide range of information security and technology-specific qualifications. Many are the absolute minimum that any data centre provider should hold, but we have gone beyond those minimum requirements, equipping our teams with superior knowledge and qualifications. Here are just some of the qualifications that help give our customers peace of mind that they are working with security experts.
CISM promotes international security practices and our CISM-certified staff provide companies with an information security management recognised around the globe.
The CISSP is an objective measure of excellence. It’s the most globally recognised standard of achievement in the industry and was the first cybersecurity credential to meet the strict conditions of ISO/IEC Standard 17024. We’re also proud to hold CISSP-ISSAP Information Systems Security Architecture Professional award, achieved by only c. 2.5% of CISSP professionals.
The Check Point Certified Security Master (CCSM) is Check Point's most advanced technical credential, which validates the ability of candidates to use advanced commands to troubleshoot, configure and optimise Check Point Security Systems.
Certified Ethical Hacker is a professionally skilled individual who comes with the talent of understanding and preventing the weakness accountability of the targeted system. It uses similar tools and knowledge as a hacker would - but within the limitations bounded by the law.
